I put up some of the rules Gecko follows at 
http://esw.w3.org/topic/HTML/ContentTypeIssues#head-63a838cdbaf10811db05eeb9f2aa8d0b464e1597

Note that I found it very difficult to work with the table as set up, because 
the type determination often depends on more than just the server-provided type 
header.  Also note that some of the comparisons are case-sensitive; I indicated 
those by putting the relevant header values in quotes.

I'm not really sure what to make of the various "main resource" parts, since you 
have to decide on a type before you can decide which of those applies.  I left 
all but the HTML part blank.

I'm also not sure what LINK@href(other) really means here, so I just 
question-marked it.
